Equilibrio Emocional

El Curso "Cultivando equilibrio emocional" fue creado en el año 2000 en respuesta a un pedido

directo del Dalai Lama a un grupo de neurocientíficos, psicólogos y maestros budistas destacados en una conferencia

del Mind & Life Institute sobre las emociones destructivas.

What is it about 

I like to think of emotions as:

E- energy + motion- movement.

Learning to experience and express our emotions wisely gives us a  invigorating feeling of full joy and fulfillment. This makes the mind naturally more peaceful, focused and clear, which is the support of greater mental balance. With greater mental balance we can begin to go deeper within ourselves, interpersonal relationships and the world  around us, discovering the joy of knowing reality as it is.  

Because it is important

this course?

When fight or flight is not an option, we must learn to flow.

This is a course where we will learn to flow expressing our inner world in a wise and constructive way.

You'll learn:

  • To know the Process of emotions. This process assesses the environment and ourselves by recording events that are important to our well-being. This triggers a cascade of cognitive, somatic, behavioral, and subjective effects.  
  • To recognize emotional triggers. These are easier to learn than to eradicate and the triggers that we learned as children and that no longer serve us, can lead us to unfortunate episodes and give inappropriate responses to current situations. That is why knowing the process, knowing the universal and personal triggers is key.

You will also learn:

  • To develop Techniques. Insight training can bring awareness to processes that otherwise remain unconscious and automatic. Carrying awareness means that we can choose how to express and how to experience emotions. In the course you will learn specific practices that come from contemplative traditions and that are aimed at stabilizing attention, recognizing cognitive tendencies, sharpening somatic perception, strengthening conscious intention and prioritizing compassionate response towards ourselves and towards others. others.
  • And recognize the power of choice. Being aware of the emotional process in the midst of an emotional episode allows conscious intervention to break the automatic flow of impulse to action and provides the opportunity to choose the expression of emotions in a constructive way.
  • Prácticas específicas que vienen de las tradiciones contemplativas y que son apuntadas a estabilizar la atención, a reconocer las tendencias cognitivas, a agudizar la percepción somática, a fortalecer la intención conciente y a dar prioridad a la respuesta compasiva hacia nosotros mismos y hacia los demás.

"Between the stimulus and the response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose a response. 
In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
Victor Frankl

“An extremely revealing workshop, I learned about emotions, their genesis, their characteristics… so much so that I understood myself from another place. A workshop that gave me tools that did me a lot of good."

Florence Perez Modesto

“The workshop made a change in me. On a personal level: I improved my eating habits and meditation became my place and time.

I managed to balance and give myself permission in my emotions, now I observe them, analyze, accept and appreciate myself.

My empathy and compassion continue to grow and work daily."

Carla Calabrese

"The course gave me tools so that my emotions do not overwhelm me, to be able to understand them as impermanent energies, as passing guests that come and go. I learned to identify them, not to be afraid of them and to intensify the intention to identify and make the most of the previous moments to the same  to be able to prosecute them and avoid destructive impulses."

 Maria Jose Korn

"I loved the course that we took!!! It helped me a lot in this stage of the pandemic to manage fears, uncertainty as we did in the meetings with you... my experience was super positive and I would like to repeat it."
